For over 25 years, TG has published Shoptalk, its industry newsletter. It launched as a monthly print publication in 1990, went electronic — and weekly — in 2001, and converted to a blog with continued weekly distribution in 2001. Effective with this week's edition, Shoptalk will no longer issue the weekly digest version via email, but will continue to post articles to the blog to help you stay in tune with industry announcements, policy changes, and TG updates.

Like most institutions, colleges and universities buy coverage for all kinds of potential threats, including damage to property, breaches in data security, sickness affecting faculty and staff, and injury to the school's athletes. Student loan default is another area that can leave schools vulnerable, especially given the consequences of high rates. High cohort default rates (CDRs) can imperil a school's eligibility for Title IV, which can have a cascading effect — preventing students from applying for admission and even leading to school closure. If you want to safeguard your institution's CDR — and add value to your own services for student borrowers in the process — consider HigherEDGE® Default Management Solutions.
